Sydney, Nova Scotia / Canada
The city of Sydney with its approximately 30,000 inhabitants is located in the South East of Canada on the Cape Breton Island on Cabot Street, which separates this island from Newfoundland. Sydney is also the largest city on the island.
The city was founded at the end of the 18th century and lived for a long time from the steel industry.
Some old houses from the 18th century are still visible today. Among them is the Cossit House, now a museum, and the Jost Heritage House, which once belonged to a wealthy trader. St Patrick's Church is also worth a visit, as it is the oldest church in Cape Breton. In the vicinity of Sydney there are many other worthwhile destinations, including the fortress of Louisbourg, the Marconi National Historic Site and, of course, the beautiful nature with brilliant coloring.
